The Weekend Desk Report

Special Kentucky Derby Edition
Hey, remember last year when we were all so excited about that female jockey? Yeah, well, this year it seems even the horses' names are hopelessly masculine.

Bet The Alpha Male
We'd ordinarily say this one is a lock, but these days no one really seems to know exactly which horse we're talking about.

Dangerous Liaison
As far as we can tell, this horse hasn't really hooked up anyone.

Daddy Nose Best?
No, Guilia, it looks like he doesn't.

Take Charge Indy
We'd make a joke about this one needing a little Luck, but then we'd have to retire in shame.

No Rose To Run
Don't even think about betting this one. The really smart money says he isn't even going to make it through the first turn.

Hair Of The Horse . . .
Well, it is Cinco De Mayo. Your best bet may simply be giving up and going with the flow.
